Dynacord Add-One users?

Post by Kazremark » Mon May 16, 2016 8:47 pm

Any members of this forum own the Dynacord Add-One. I recently got one and have been loving it, but seems to be pretty rare kit. I don't even know anyone who has ever heard of it :)

I used to want one years ago, not sure I'd get into it now, though.

I'm really loving the sound, super powerful. Installed a floppy emulator in mine recently. Now I just need to get a PC so I can transfer all the disks that came with it into omniflop files. If anybody has any to share, PM me!

I love mine and have the disk drive/sampler add on. I have disks including official factory kits, and I'll look into getting them loaded up to share. It's a great poly synth on top of the drums and the generator sounds can emulate everything from Nintendo/commodore like sounds to gentle bells to percussive leads.

Oh, wow, that one was super overpriced given it clearly needed work. They all seem to suffer from aging caps and dimming displays so that should be a factor in the price you're willing to pay.

Yeah the Add-Drive sampler extension is key. If you get around to uploading those disks of yours that would be rad. Currently I'm having to sample each kit by hand which isn't the worst thing for learning the unit and having unique sounds. But would be awesome to have access to the library.

I always had my eyes on those, I love samplers with analogue stages, especially for drums, my sequential 440 gets the job done for the moment. Any exclusive features to the ADD-One?

Among other things, the ADD-One has 8 x 3389's and two CV control jacks for pitch and duration. Also, Master L/R/Mono, Monitor L/R/Mono, and Headphones out, all with individual volume control... Here are some pics...

Fascinating piece, looks like it weights a ton but probably worth it, wish my 440 had cv inputs, even though I record the pitch changes internally that would open it up for tricks. :cry:

The 440 also uses 8 x 3389's!

I know they are 2 different beasts, but what is the consensus regarding the ADD-one vs. Studio 440?

Seems to me, the ADD-one has the 440 beat in terms of functionality. I'm no expert so it would be great if anyone cares to chime in. :)

I love mine I went a little crazy and bought 4 of them. I bought the first one and it died on me so I sorta gave up on it for a while. Then one day I said fuck it and started buying them up off of ebay. Once I had the ones I bought I went to my tech and asked him to get as many fixed units as he could from what I handed off to him. He could only get two of them working because one of them some asshole poured some sorta liquid into it. So I have two working units and I love them both dearly.



Hey Kazremark do you mind telling me which floppy emulator you used I would love to update mine.

hey :miley: i recently got hold of an ADD One. Wow. What a huge sound. It definitely takes patience to program but in the time I've had it I've managed to get some gigantic sounds of out it. :hail:

The generators are very powerful. Very clean sound too. Has anyone here used the tape input to load patches?

Been using mine a bunch lately, installing the Lotharek HXC floppy emulator is a real game changer. Highly recommended workflow improvement! Now I just need to figure out a way to create kits on the computer and save them as floppy images. Anyone aware of tools that can do this?

Dynacord Add one set - second one

Post by Obsoletemachines » Sun Jun 10, 2018 5:42 am

Yes, they did. I believe my price is reasonable given the work conducted on these machines...and we live in a market economy.

Couple of easter eggs:
press code, then cursor to firmware version then hit help...gives you the name of the designer...hit help again 'Will i dream'

There is another easter egg:
with 'boom' as a message but i have forgotten how to get there.
